On tap at the brewery.

Pours a dark amber brown. 1 inch head, not much lacing.

The aroma includes smoke, roasted malt, and grassy hops.

The taste is pretty similar, with some additional caramel and toffee, along with a pleasant smokiness, and lightly roasted malt.

Light to medium bodied, slightly creamy mouthfeel, very drinkable.

Never had an Irish Red Stout before, interesting. A bit bland, but still very drinkable.
